There remains some controversy on this music. Supposedly found/collected by a Miss Jane Ross, as the melody grew in popularity doubts were cast on its authenticity for its unusual form. Was it badly dictated in the first instance? We shall probably never know! Johnstone has taken the theme to construct a Concert Fantasy, though in essence it is some two full variations based on the theme, each one harder. It makes for a compelling concert piece.
